Dr. Lee has been caring for me for several years when previous Dr. retired. She is knowledge, caring, empathetic and looks for solutions. Her care has literally been life changing for me.

TM – Mar 28, 2021
beware of Evergreen medical, we had Dr. Lee as a doctor and they discontinued our care as they do not take Tri-care anymore. My husband is a disabled American Veteran. I do understand the difficulties in managing care and sometime you have to choose, but these men and women severed their country, some getting shot and others wounded and when they come home and need care are met with "we have revoked taking your insurance" you will have to find another doctor, and we have called to see if we can have Dr. Lee recommend someone else and they will not give her any messages My advice stay way from Evergreen Medical group, you never know when your number is up and can't be seen.

I'm still waiting to hear back from her, but I'll give you a first impression: High heels at 8 am. You are a pain doctor, I doubt your credibility based on the scientific evidence that high heels are bad for your feet. Secondly, and more importantly, you seem oblivious to the fact that your patients are most likely suffering from life altering pain. Walking in teetering on heels is a pretty insensitive move. Doubting a physicians credibility and compassion is a bad first impression. Maybe she'll actually help me, but doubtful.

Do not waste your time! After many “let’s try this” and invasive attempts to help my lumbar spine, it’s now worse than when I began with this ‘doctor’. She doesn’t listen, judges, and non stop interruptions during visits. How is this type of practice happening. Never been so uncomfortable, dealt with this every month for 7 mo. Was told that ablation is the answer to all the back issues I’m dealing with. (Tumor on neck, stenosis, RA) Only to be left in worse condition than when I started with her. I’m hoping I can find another doctor soon!

Dr. Lee Is amazing. Empathetic and companionate. I went there today with severe neck pain. From overdoing it at the barn. She added me and we decided to treat me with Neurontin and a muscle relaxant Tizabdine. And I will be getting a cortisone injection next week. I honestly thought no way I need Tramadol this pain is 8/10, I trusted her suggestions instead and took her advice. I went home took my medication. Put heat on my neck and now feeling much better. All opioids do is bloke the pain center in the brain. Relaxants actually decrease the inflammation. Thank you Dr. Lee Kat

Katerina Falkenberg – Feb 06, 2020
Worst!! Doctor I have ever been to!!! She only saw me two times and decided I was an addict and needed to go in to an in-house treatment center. I had been in severe pain following double knee replacement and three lumbar surgeries which all were unsuccessful in relieving severe pain. I was moderately active while on pain meds but she cut me off without any pain meds and left me in unbelievable pain now for over a year. Have been relegated to a recliner or bed due to severe pain. She lied in her notes about me that are now Online and available for other Dr.s to see and I am now misrepresented by what she put in my records. They should subject Dr.s like J. Lee to the pain that she has subjected me to and see if she could live with it as I have had to do. It's no wonder that severe pain patients across the United States are committing suicide at an all time high because of Dr.s like Jennifer M. Lee! She should loose her license for what she has done to those that are in severe pain.

Anne in Redmond , WA – Nov 19, 2019
I went to Dr. Lee after cancer surgery to be treated for post surgical pain which was extremely high. Her Rx was a nerve block. I waited for 5 weeks for my imaging to be sent to her office and finally called and found out they had yet received it and had not followed up. At this point I was out of pain meds and asked her office to give me small Rx for pain meds until the nerve block was done. I was told I had to come in for an in clinic visit. I told them I had already had gone for an in clinic visit, that it was not my fault they didn't have the imagining yet and that I was NOT going in just to get a Rx when they had a full history of my pain meds use. Doctors want....NO, expect us to trust them. Then why can't they trust us especially since she could easily get my history of pain meds use which was nominal. I am NOT going to be treated like a drug addict. I told her office that if I have to trust her, she has to trust me and if she can't then she is no longer my pain doctor.

Dr. Lee ignored my concerns about severe medication sensitivity when managing my pain with her medication cocktail. Six months of dizziness, imbalance and even some confusion and an anxiety attack in her office, she repeated my very words back to me: “You are extremely sensitive to medication” as if it were a learned conclusion. Each appointment her nature changed and not with compassion and care for me but seemingly covering all her bases.

Bothell, WA – Jun 02, 2019
Dr. Jennifer Lee has a fixed schedule of medications which she uses on everyone so if if works for you then you are lucky but if they do not work then you will be miserable and it will not be easy to get started with someone else. In addition, she even gets the prescriptions she talks about mixed up and often you end up with no medication at all. Then there are endless calls to people who have no update on your chart from any recent visit.

Sima O. in Bellevue – Nov 19, 2018
I want to see dr lee for surgery level pain (months away from surgery). After several visits I was left untreated and unhappy. Her office never called me regarding scheduling of any referrals, I was left guessing when they were ready. I found dr lee to talk over me and I felt not listened to, massively under treated, and unhappy with our office visits/ phonecalls. I felt very unhappy with the level of treatment provided

Dr. Lee is the worst doctor I’ve ever had. She has screwed up my prescriptions each time I’ve seen her- a total of 6 times. Her notes do not reflect what we actually discuss. I don’t know how she can still be in practice.

Dr. Lee was sincere, caring & patient. I have cancer pain and she offered me options other than just more oxycodone. She explained why my nerve pain didn't improve with usual pain meds & gave me a medicine that did work! I highly recommend this excellent doctor.
